Laura Jane Grace announces solo(ish) album on Bloodshot, and tour
Laura Jane Grace recently teased that she has a new non-Against Me! project in the works, and now more details on that project are finally revealed. She signed to Bloodshot Records to release the debut album by her new solo-ish project, Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers. She made the album with drummer Atom Willard (who's also in Against Me! and has played in a bunch of other big punk bands) and Marc Jacob Hudson (who's a recordist and mixer at Rancho Records and has engineered for Against Me!). Laura says:
I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.
The album is due out in the fall, and no music is out from it yet, but the band revealed they'd be playing some Midwest shows this fall. All dates are listed below.
Before that, Against Me! have upcoming shows, including House of Vans Brooklyn on Friday (8/3) with Cherry Glazerr and Taking Meds, and The Bouncing Souls' Stoked for the Summer show at Asbury Park's Stone Pony Summer Stage on Saturday (8/4) with Titus Andronicus, Smoking Popes, and Tim Barry.
